Philippine National Anthem


The Philippine National Anthem is "Lupang Hinirang" and many people think that it was "Bayang Magiliw" but it was wrong. The lyrics was composed by Jose Palma a young poet-soldier and music by Julian Felipe a filipino music teacher.

A national anthem is very important to a country, it is like a soundtrack of a movie that makes its identity. But many people especially singers tried to change its bit and rhythmn and put their own rendition on the song but it is a great violation according to R.A. 8491 specifies that Lupang Hinirang "shall be in accordance with the musical arrangement and composition of Julian Felipe.

Official Lyrics in Filipino:
LUPANG HINIRANG

Bayang magiliw,
Perlas ng Silanganan,
Alab ng puso,
Sa dibdib mo'y buhay.

Lupang Hinirang,
Duyan ka ng magiting,
Sa manlulupig,
'Di ka pasisiil.

Sa dagat at bundok,
Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw,
May dilag ang tula
At awit sa paglayang minamahal.

Ang kislap ng watawat mo'y
Tagumpay na nagniningning,
Ang bituin at araw niya
Kailan pa ma'y di magdidilim.

Lupa ng araw,
ng luwalhati't pagsinta,
Buhay ay langit
sa piling mo;

Aming ligaya,
na 'pag may mang-aapi
Ang mamatay
nang dahil sa iyo.

Lyrics in Cebuano: 
YUTANG TABUNON
Yutang tabunon
Mutya nga masilakon
Putling bahandi
Amo kang gimahal
Mithing gisimba
Yuta s'mga bayani
Sa manglulupig
Among panalipdan
Ang mga bungtod mo ug lapyahan
Ang langit mong bughaw
Nagahulad sa awit, lamdag sa
Kaliwat tang gawas
Silaw sa adlaw ug bitoon
Sa nasudnong bandila
Nagatimaan nga buhion ta
Hugpong nga di maluba
Yutang maanyag, duyan ka sa pagmahal
Landong sa langit ang dughaan mo;
Pakatam-isom sa anak mong nagtukaw
Kon mamatay man sa ngalan mo.

Lyrics in English:
CHOSEN LAND
Beloved country,
Pearl of the Orient,
The heart's fervor,
In your bosom is ever alive.
Chosen Land,
You are the cradle of the brave,
To the conquerors,
You shall never surrender.
Through the seas and mountains,
Through the air and your azure skies,
There is splendor in the poem
And songs of beloved freedom.
The sparkle of your flag
Is shining victory.
Its stars and sun
Forever will never dim.
Land of the morning, of glory, of our affection,
Life is heaven in your arms;
When someone oppresses you, it is our pleasure
To die for you.

If you are a filipino do not try to change it and show our patriotism and respect in our country.
